India, champion of the first T20 World Cup, is preparing for another World Cup. With the World Cup scheduled to begin in the United Arab Emirates and Oman in October, the team’s management has begun deliberating on player decisions and tactics. India will accelerate preparations for the World Cup once the five-match test series against England is over. The World Cup will also see some surprising changes from Captain Virat Kohli.
It should come as no surprise that Rohit Sharma, one of the best limited overs cricketers, has decided to leave his starting position. If Rohit reaches the intermediate order, the strength of the team will increase. There is no doubt that Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant will be the best in the world. If Rohit becomes fourth place, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan will have to open.
Mohammad Siraj, who has excelled in the IPL and later the national team, is likely to be included in the T20 squad at the last minute. Siraj is the main bowler for Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore. So it should come as no surprise that Siraj has been inducted into the World Cup squad. Siraj is a player who knows how to take advantage of the situation in the United Arab Emirates.
The possibility of replacing the out-of-form Hardik Pandya with another all-rounder cannot be ruled out. In that case, Deepak Chahar, who shone in Sri Lanka, may have a chance. But it is doubtful that Chahar can excel in the T20 format. However, the possibility of replacing Pandya with Chahar in the squad is active.
Neither Dhawan nor Shami, the youths took the place; Saba Kareem joins Indian team for T20 World Cup
Since the World Cup is being held in the United Arab Emirates, India will have players who will be able to take advantage of the situation here. India is likely to include three spinners in the field to assist the spinners. Yusvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Rahul Chahar, Varun Chakraborty, Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sunder are the main spinners of the Indian team.
